I learned to sew when I was 15, when my mom loaned me her Kenmore. It was in a cabinet with a lift-up top and the machine was mounted on a shelf that lowered into the cabinet as the top was folded closed.

I had a lot of fun making clothes – I’m pretty sure the first thing I ever made was an angel costume for a church production; I also used an old pattern to make a skirt and wrap blouse. I’m sure it didn’t look nearly as good as I thought it did, but I had a good time, and I learned a lot making it.

Since then, I’ve made lots of things- smocked outfits for my kids when they were little; dresses and suits for myself; baby dolls, teddy bears and other craft items.

I finally even learned to quilt; I’ve made several since 2012 when I first learned, and again, it’s such an enjoyable hobby. Each one has been special to me and I’ve got quite a list still to make.

My latest project has been a doll that we’ll be raffling off at Cancer Freeze on Saturday, Feb 4.  I had the idea for a biker doll several years ago, but it never came together until we decided to be a part of this year’s Cancer Freeze. I found a doll pattern on nunodoll.com that has worked out perfectly! He puts clear instructions with lots of pictures on every pattern and while I was a little nervous about it, I believe she turned out beautifully.

I’ll be making more dolls from this website- I hope you’ll visit it as well.
